Israel's parliament approves Netanyahu-Gantz coalition government, FRANCE 24's Irris Makler reports

Israel's parliament has approved the formation of a unity government between Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his former rival Benny Gantz. The move ends more than a year of political deadlock and follows the ruling by the High Court of Justice on petitions asking to bar politicians with criminal charges from forming a government, FRANCE 24’s Jerusalem correspondent Irris Malker reports. The two men are expected to be sworn in a power sharing government next week.
